- A new leak supposedly offers a look at a PlayStation 5 design document.
- The document suggests the PlayStation 5 will be spherical.
- It’s unquestionably fake, but it’s by far the most exotic design we’ve seen to date.
The rumor mill marked today, March 3, as the day on which Sony would finally unveil the PlayStation 5 (PS5) in all its glory.
As we edge ever closer to the end of the day, that grand reveal seems even more unlikely, if it wasn’t already.
Yet, today has produced one intriguing PlayStation 5 nugget in the form of a supposedly “leaked” design that is the easily most fanciful to date.
Spherical PS5 Design ‘Leaks’
Surfacing on Reddit earlier today, an alleged internal document (with the PlayStation logo and strategically blacked-out redactions) showcases diagrams of what purports to be the retail design of the PlayStation 5.
It’s definitely not the real PS5, but top marks for creativity:
Spherical and looking like a botched amalgamation of a Poke Ball and Star Wars’ plucky BB-8 droid, the design is by far the most technically improbable we’ve seen yet.
The headache of cramming components into such a restrictive shape would be a feat in itself, let alone packing in all the next-gen features expected in the PlayStation 5.
